Where do you even begin to start with Cosmo Sheldrake, when we ran an introduction earlier this year I faced the same predicament. He plays around 30 instruments uses elaborate vocal talents ranging from mongolian throat singing and tibetan chanting to beatboxing…a true one-man-band in the most modern yet primitive sense as he feeds everyday sounds into loops and music that leave you mystified and longing for a peek inside his head to check out how he perceives the daily world around him…definitely with a child-like curiosity and wonder but also with a fair measure of genius.
We’ve featured him performing on a farm but his latest Bulgarian excursion is by far the most wonderous:
And a track from his recent Daytrotter session on which he indulges us with his chanting skills..
